Seabourn has reported robust booking volume for its ‘2022 World Cruise: Extraordinary Horizons’ program since opening for reservations. The cruise line says the demand demonstrates an “underlying desire by luxury travellers to book a long vacation experience during a time where travel opportunities have been limited”.
Seabourn’s premier itinerary is already half filled on segments through to the halfway point in Shanghai. Limited space is available on the leg from Los Angeles on the full 145-day voyage or shorter segments.
“We are really encouraged by the tremendous amount of positive interest and bookings for our 2022 World Cruise, which clearly demonstrates that now is the time to consider a booking rather than later on when suite availability may be limited or even sold out,” said Seabourn’s recently appointed Vice president of Global Sales, Steve Smotrys.
“The past few months has given travellers time to consider when they are ready to explore the world again and know that when they travel with Seabourn, they’ll visit some of the world’s most fascinating destinations, while experiencing the personalised, intuitive service we are known for.”
The ultra-luxury Seabourn Sojourn will depart Los Angeles on 11 January, 2022, and travel westbound, visiting Hawaii, the islands of the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, a number of destinations in Asia, Arabia, Africa, before ending in Athens, Greece, on 6 June, 2022.
“Given the uncertainty in the world, our Seabourn guests and travel advisors are showing a desire to book a vacation further into next year and to make that trip something very, very special. The World Cruise in 2022 is a signature event and the demand for this cruise has demonstrated that interest,” said Josh Leibowitz, President of Seabourn.
Seabourn Sojourn will call at 72 ports and destinations in 28 countries throughout the course of the sailing. The voyage includes 20 overnights and will linger late into the evening in 21 ports.
There will be three exclusive world cruise events planned for guests booked on the full 145-day voyage, as well as local shows, regional cuisines, and palate-pleasing wines for all guests to enjoy as they sail around the globe.
For guests who cannot sail on the entire 145-day voyage, shorter segments ranging from 22 to 89 days are also available.
Guests who book either the full world cruise or segments and pay in full by 31 May, 2021 will receive an additional 3% saving on the cruise-only fare.
